The longest-running professional beauty event in the United States drew a large crowd of industry members, all looking to reengage with the community and rejuvenate their businesses.

After a three-year interruption due to COVID-19, Questex’s International Beauty Show New York (IBS New York) and International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conference New York (IECSC New York) made a triumphant return to the Javits Center. Twenty thousand were the professionals attending to experience the unique education, face-to-face networking and unbeatable excitement that can only be found at these two iconic events.
Over 400 exhibitors showcased their newest products, the latest techniques, and invaluable in‐booth demonstrations by some of the top artists in the industry.
Exhibitors at IBS New York 2022 included Agadir, Amika, Andis, Blackpants, Brazilian Blowout, CHI by Farouk, Daisy Nail, DNA Hair Tools, Gelish and Morgan Taylor, Hattori Hanzo Shears, Johnny B Haircare, Kanar, LeChat Nails, Olaplex, Pibbs, Truss, Turbo Power and many more!

Harlan Kirchner, President of the Kirshner Group enthusiastically said: “It looks like 2022 is off to a good start with a crowded IBS New York show. It’s great to be back doing beauty business!”

Liz Hitchcock, event director for IBS and IECSC commented “It was wonderful to be back in NYC and to witness first-hand the passion and creativity that is such an integral part of our industry. The excitement and pure joy were palpable. Our community thrives on connection and the Shows were a great way to reengage after three long years apart.”

IBS NY attendees had the chance to participate in over eighty classes and Hands-On Workshops covering trendsetting techniques and education in key categories including hair, nails, brows, men’s grooming, business, marketing, and more.
The legendary IBS New York Main Stage featured elite artists sharing demonstrations and tips to boost professionals’ careers and bottom line.
